Zero Motorcycles released its 2018 models. While they don’t look much different from the 2017s on the outside (except the gorgeous new silver paint!), it’s what’s inside that counts. Like — 10% longer range thanks to new battery chemistry on all ZF7.2 and ZF14.4 models! Zero is also offering quick charging — 6 times faster, thanks to the 6kW charge tank accessory for S, SR, DS, and DSR models.
That torque, though…
From Zero: “All motorcycles with the compact and lighter weight ZF7.2 power pack offer 11% more rear wheel torque to slingshot ahead of cars and fellow motorcyclists. New gearing and a higher maximum motor rpm deliver the improved performance without any reductions in top speed.In addition, Zero fine tuned the powertrains of the ZF13.0 Zero S and Zero DS to deliver up to 30% more power and torque to amp up acceleration at highway speeds. “
It’s great to see that Zero is not only continuing to push battery capacity forward, but is also continuing to improve the quality of their components. And the prices are the same as 2017.
